Model projections suggest the possibility of anywhere from eight to sixteen inches of snow in a swath from the northern Texas Panhandle through Western Oklahoma to Western Missouri by Tuesday AM. Some places probably see more than that. Winter Storm and Blizzard Warnings are out for much of the Plains with this storm, similar to last Thursday's winter storm as well.
The precipitation is welcome for those in the Plains despite the inconvenience of snow. These areas are still under extreme drought conditions and need a lot of rain in the next three months to get themselves out of drought conditions. Parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas need to pick up over 18 inches of rain, nearly double their average, before the end of April. This month has provided a good start in that denting for the Plains, as well as the Southeast as they also picked up a few inches of rain from last week's storm and should get more from this upcoming storm.
